Freycinet To Bay Of Fires

The east coast of Tasmania is a wildly beautiful part of the world, and the few days we spent travelling north from Freycinet to Bay of Fires were some of the most spectacular of our recent Tassie trip. Kicking off in Freycinet National Park, we tackled the Wineglass Bay and Hazards Beach Circuit, an 11km trek from sea level, then up over the Hazards mountains and down into beautiful Wineglass Bay, along a marshy isthmus to Hazards Beach, and back around the headland to the starting point. The first glimpse of the bay is one of those legitimately breathtaking vistas (sidenote: lack of breath may also be related to the vertical ascent).

After Freycinet we hit the road north, via picturesque Bicheno for a spot of breakfast and Ironhouse Brewery for lunch (the world’s most scenic brewery, it must be said). Our port of call was Binalong Bay, where a sunset stroll to the furthest headland was a must for a glimpse of the spectacular flame-red rocks this part of the world is famous for. A side trip to Jeanerette Beach was the perfect spot for a quiet morning swim, stroll and snorkel before we turned west to Launceston.
